As an ex submariner, I clearly see the main advantages and disadvantages of possessing submarine forces. From my perspective, countries with any submarines belong to the naval "Premier League" and rest of the countries belong to the naval "Football League One". There are many no wealthy countries which consequently invest their limited resources to keep/buy submarines. They can observe and appreciate maritime capabilities provided by submarines. I hope, that this blog will support discussion regarding the existing and future submarine situation for the GCC countries and their needs.
